[Industry] Concrete product manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] Concrete products usually require 14-day aging, but our company can ship products in a short period of time with seven-day aging.

[Representative's message] Our company already has regular sales channels for site preparation works in Oita Prefecture. We will still promote our business by enhancing our products and establishing a construction system so that customers can place orders without hesitation. Our goal is to extend our sales channels to house-building firms and major housing manufacturers closer to housing. We are now devoted to developing a pile construction method. We think that obtaining construction method certification will pave the way to a new kind of sales to major housing manufacturers.
